I’m not sure where you get that Judas isn’t a villain?

“The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born” Matthew 26:24

“While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.” John 17:12

Acts 1:17-18, “he was one of our number and shared in this ministry.”

18 (With the reward he got for his wickedness, Judas bought a field; there he fell headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines spilled out.”

Did God know that he would betray Jesus? Of course. That does not excuse him from being the instrument that Satan used to betray Christ.

True, but I believe, Jesus said “the first shall be last” for a reason, and if Judas accepts Jesus as the son of God and savior of mankind, he will be allowed to enter into heaven! Everyone will be forgiven just so long as you accept Jesus. The son of God hung out with thieves, prostitutes, and murders for a reason, it’s hard to believe that some truly horrible people could be forgiven, but that’s the beauty of Jesus’ sacrifice, the way to the kingdom is through him. A well man does not need a doctor, but a sick man does!
21 After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, “I tell you the truth, one of you is going to betray me.”
22 His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant.
23 One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him.
24 Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, “Ask him which one he means.”
25 Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, “Lord, who is it?”
6 Jesus answered, “It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.” Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, son of Simon.
27 As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. “What you are about to do, do quickly,” Jesus told him,
